Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Thou didst love me, O my Saviour,
When my heart was far from Thee,
Thou didst give Thyself a ransom
To atone for one like me.

I will praise Thee, I will bless Thee,
For the peace Thy love bestows,
And the fountain Thou hast opened,
That to all so freely flows.

2 I beseech Thee, O my Saviour,
“That my earthly life may be,
But a shadow to that glory,
Of my hidden life in Thee.” [Refrain]

3 I will praise Thee, O my Saviour,
For the message I have heard,
And the lessons Thou hast taught me,
By the Spirit thro’ Thy word. [Refrain]

4 I will praise Thee, O my Saviour,
For Thy tender, patient care,
And the promise that assures me,
Thou wilt hear and answer pray’r. [Refrain]
